Driftwood is my favorite subject. Evenings With My Father, Australia Lou Moore Acrylic with ink and oil accents on canvas 48" × 48" (122cm × 122cm) Evenings With My Father was born from the necessity to record and preserve the precious times spent walking, talking and laughing with my father toward the end of his life in the incredible landscape of South Australia.
